The Role

We’re seeking a Machine Learning Research Engineer to join us in our mission to improve human health and quality of life through the development, distribution, and application of advanced computational methods!

As a member of our Machine Learning team, you’ll deal with DNA, RNA, small molecule design, materials design, and/or quantum physics. Previous experience in these domains is not required, but an interest in learning is.

Who will love this job:

  • An engineer who can run independent projects end to end and is familiar with tensorflow, pytorch, Pandas, and/or sklearn
  • A self-directed researcher who can wade through technical domains to get to “the real problem”
  • An excellent communicator who loves collaborating in a team environment

What you’ll do:

  • Collaborate closely with scientists, developers, and drug hunters to deliver new research that meet business and product goals
  • Given a clean slate, assess the merit of an idea and help the team decide whether to develop it into a full feature
  • Use your own judgment and with support from teammates to architect and implement proof-of-concept solutions
  • Participate in a code reviewing environment that encourages learning and high code quality

What you should have:

  • Basic grasp of statistics
  • Ability to work with multi-dimensional data and solve data munging problems with python
  • BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Machine Learning, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, or a related field

We’d prefer to hire someone with:

  • Familiarity with source control (GIT, SVN, etc.)
  • An understanding of continuous integration
  • Background in large-scale distributed computing (pbs, slurm, etc.)
  • Experience with building systems that operate on more than ten machines
  • Knowledge of log processing and data analysis
  • An understanding of ADME and/or QSAR/QSPR
  • An independent interest in science (an undergraduate major or minor is a plus!)

Pay and perks:

Schrödinger understands it’s people that make a company great. Because of this, we’re prepared to offer a competitive salary, stock options, and a wide range of benefits that include healthcare (with dental and vision), a 401k, pre-tax commuter benefits, a flexible work schedule, and a parental leave program. We have catered meals in the office every day, a company culture that is relaxed but engaged, and over a month of paid vacation time.  Our Administrative and Human Resources departments also plan a myriad of fun company-wide events. New York is home to our largest office, but we have teams all over the world. Schrödinger is honored to have been selected as one of Crain’s New York Best Places to Work for three years running.

Estimated base salary range (NYC only): $120,000 – $145,000.
